Handel composed the Concerto for Harp, two recorders, strings and basso continuo for the premiere of his ode Alexander’s Feast (as an illustration of Timotheus, the ancient poet who played the lyre). He later performed it himself as an organ concerto. The fine sonorous effects (use of mutes, pizzicato, recorders), which last but not least made the work famous, are also shown in the version for organ to the best advantage. For the first time the new edition is based solely on the autograph score which, according to the latest findings, renders the only reliable source. In addition, the basso continuo part presents the figuration of the first edition, which is of interest for historical performance practice.
